The 10 year overnight success model is one Josh Grider is very familiar with. You know, the one where the guy that’s been hanging around for about a decade finally gets his shot at the big time? Having been a respected member of the Texas/Red Dirt Music Scene for years, it wasn’t until spring of 2013 that momentum really started to build for this NM born country singers career. There had been little successes along the way no doubt; a song called Crazy Like You from his Walt Wilkins produced 2007 release “Million Miles To Go” has sold over 30,000 copies, repeated invites to the big festivals and opening slots for big regional and national acts, and even a “Live At Billy Bob’s Texas” recording in 2011 certainly helped keep things moving forward. However, Josh’s career got kicked into a high gear in early 2012 when he signed his first publishing deal with AMP Entertainment, and subsequently recorded “The Gettin’ There”. That year he also partnered with Paradigm Agency to represent his bookings and was featured on the national television show Troubadour TX. “The Gettin’ There” would yield 3 number one songs on the Texas Regional Radio Report, and 2 number one songs on the Texas Music Chart for Josh. In November 2013 he carried that momentum into the studio with producer Trent Willmon to record 2014’s full length album “Luck & Desire”. Josh will play nearly 150 tour dates in 2014 as he hits the road in support of his latest effort. He’s paid his dues, he’s waited his turn, and it looks like Josh Grider just might be 2014’s 10 year overnight success story.
